■ Recommended measures to be taken to promote ELV recycling
in Asian countries:
1. Government-led development of ELV recycling infrastructure
through fostering of dismantling operators, shredder operators, etc.
2. Setting of ELV recycling targets according to local conditions
3. Development of ELV recycling infrastructure based on existing
provisions in each country and clear identification of the respective
roles of all the stakeholders concerned including vehicle users
4. Adoption of a common vehicle dismantling information system*
*Online contact: The International Dismantling Information System (IDIS) which, to
support ELV treatment operators, provides all essential information for the proper
treatment of ELVs through a user-friendly interface, accessible online free of
charge, that adapts displayed content to the region of use.
